This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will bring together researchers in the emerging field of computational algebraic statistics. This new field applies methods of computational algebra and discrete geometry to problems in multivariate analysis, experimental design, probability theory, and disclosure limitation. The interaction of these areas has led, for instance, to the algebraic geometry of hierarchical models and Bayesian networks. The workshop will be a springboard for new ideas to expand the frontiers in computing Groebner bases in the context of algebraic statistics, counting lattice points in polytopes, and optimally disseminating massive data while preserving confidentiality.

The main topics for the workshop are

- Algebraic geometry of log-linear, graphical, and more generally independence models,
- Computational problems about Markov and Groebner bases,
- Combinatorial problems about multidimensional tables in disclosure limitation and data security.
